I'm somewhere in the middle
I like to hope it's all up to the individual. Some people come in and don't know which end of a shovel they're about to get hit with and some think they could do brain surgery with one.
Show up on time. (OUR time, not YOUR time!)
Show up ready to work. (hard!)
Pay attention! (you'll learn both how and how not to do things)
The thing is, this could be how a caveman learns to hunt or how an astronaut learns to land on Mars. Either way we're all still gettin' bye. Maybe a few of em go hungry though, eh?
If you're not learnin' while your earnin' then you're missing out on the better part of your compensation!
